Some say 30 is the new 20, but in the case of SSI‘s 2009 Top 30 Technology Innovations that number represents infinite possibilities. Whether you’re looking to increase profitability, become more efficient, make installations and troubleshooting easier, expand your business’ portfolio of offerings or just humor your inner techno geek, you’re bound to find something in this year’s Top 30 picks that addresses your needs.
Although manufacturers were confronted by an extremely challenging economic environment the past 12 months, you wouldn’t know it by looking at the innovations found on this list. Many suppliers remained as focused and committed as ever to advancing their security solutions. Everything from testing devices, cabling and equipment enclosures to wireless intrusion, IP-capable fire systems and networked access control to command centers, megapixel video and data analysis is in the mix.
One of the most intriguing aspects of this year’s group is its heightened international flavor. In addition to several companies headquartered north of the border, there are others hailing from across the pond. At the same time, there are a lot of familiar domestic brands that made the grade as well. What they all share in common is offering owners/managers, salespeople and technicians of installing security providers exciting opportunities and benefits.
So as you close the books on a year that, from a business standpoint, you might rather forget, you can use the technologies presented here to help ensure better returns for 2010. With that, SSI proudly presents — in alphabetical order and as chosen by Technical Writers Bob Dolph (”Tech Talk”) and Steve Payne (”Convergence Channel”) — 2009’s Top 30 Technology Innovations.
